PAGE TEN ...... ]'HE CATALINA ISLANDEit FOURTEEN BUFFALO ARE FREE ON CATALINA ISLAND It is quite a unique experience to see a herd of buffalo, fourteen of them, on Catalina Island. But such is now the case when one ventures to the west end. Mr. Tom White, who is connected with the Lasky Fihn Company of Hollywood, shipped the animals to the Isthnms last week, and they were later turned loose to browse on the hillsides west of the Isthnms. The animals were shipped to Catalina Harbor in separate crates, slowly herded by Mr. Arnold Gillatt, and driven over to the location where they will spend the winter. It is quite possible that the Lasky Film Company will use the buffalo in a picture (luring the coming spring. Several of the animals weigh 1,500 pounds each. AIRPLANE MADE OF PAPER Navy experts recently began a series of tests with a new kind of airplane, the fuselage of which is of paper com- position. If the tests prove successful, other similar plants will be ordered. --Popular Science Monthly. Arnold Gilatt Subscribe now--S2.00 per year.
